"I have no income currently, mainly due to the fact that my husband has the car and my inlaws are reluctant to add me to their insurance until they get on top of their finances. "
Not following this logic... you have no income because YOU are not working, it's not your husband's or your in-laws fault. Unless you live in the middle of nowhere, you will either have jobs within walking distance or public transportation. If you do, ask friends or neighbors for a ride in exchange for gas money.

"Once I am able to drive around, I want to find a part time job that I can do while going to school. "
You cannot afford a PT job. It's great you want to go to school, but you need a FT job, even if that means PT for school. I don't know how much certified medical assistant pays versus how much it'll cost, but check into that... there are too many degrees or certificates that are not worth the paper they are written on, make sure this isn't one of them.

Here's what I would do... you mentioned your in-laws had financial issues... you living off them with no income of your own is not helping... sit down with them and make a plan... ask for their help, short term, with a projected move out date... ask if they would be willing to watch your son while you hit the pavement getting a job, and while you work to get your first check to afford daycare (maybe they don't mind watching him, in which case contribute to the household... buy some groceries, give them cash for bills, etc)... sorry, you cannot not hee haw about this, you need to get proactive. Forget spousal support. You may or may not get child support, but even if it's ordered, he may not pay it, so be prepared to support yourself and your son 100%.

I know it sucks, and you may not think it's fair, but in the end, the only one responsible for supporting you... is you.
